: THE WAVE OF MIGRATION TO AUSTRALIA

Talk by C. E. W. Bean
Australia was virtually an empty and impenetrable continent 150 years ago. Since then she has acquired a population largely of British origin. Dr. Bean, the Australian historian, describes how waves of migration have depended on unsettlement and unrest at home, and he makes special reference to the great inflow of peoples from the Continent of Europe as well as from the British Isles since the last war.

: ALBENIZ

Iberia
Rondefia; El Albaicin; Lavapies played by Irene Kohler (piano)
The twelve piano pieces called Iberia, which Irene Kohler is playing this week (on Monday, tonight, and Saturday), are the best-known work of Isaac Albeniz, the Spanish composer and pianist who lived from 1860 to 1909. The pieces, inspired by the popular music of different parts of Spain-more particularly Andalucia-are brilliantly written for the piano, and in their course we may hear suggestions of the guitar, the castanets, and the tambourine. Albeniz, who began as an infant prodigy, sttudied at Madrid, Paris, Brussels, Leipzig, and Weimar, where he was a pupil of Liszt. He had an adventurous career, which included a period as a composer of operettas in London.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
